Too much water or too little? (Schizophragma hydrangeoides)
I recently planted seven Moonlight Climbing Hydrangeas as part of my "block out the neighbors vehicle hoarding" project. (zone 7a) The soil is all clay, I dug a really big hole, added claybreaker to the bottom, added the plant, and more claybreaker around the sides, topping it off with topsoil. (for each plant, not seven in the same hole lol) Most of them seem to be adjusting well, but a couple not so much. The leaves are pale, droopy and starting to curl a little. I don't know if the clay is holding the water in the hole too much and drowning it, or if I am watering it too lightly in fear of this.
What are the behaviors of too much water compared to too little water for this plant?
